Alumni Association Board of Directors

Individual board members act as representatives for the Alumni Association and should be knowledgeable of all association programs. Board members serve on at least one committee and should lend their professional expertise as needed. Board members are expected to participate actively and consistently in board functions and to demonstrate leadership in a variety of university volunteer activities.

The board seeks members who have supported alumni involvement through the Alumni Association or elsewhere in the university, and support the Alumni Association's mission. The Association strives to create a body that represents the diversity of the Association's membership.

The Board of Directors meets three times per year. Attendance at board meetings is critical, so dates are scheduled well in advance. Board members serve a maximum of two consecutive 3-year terms.
